We had a big storm here a couple weeks ago and every since then we have had fire ants like crazy. They are everywhere!! You cant take a step in the yard without seeing a trail of them. They are in the chicken pens, under the waterers and feeders. I get scared thinking about the chickens laying outside to beat the heat, will the fire ants kill them? I am certain they are fire ants, they sting me everyday! I have never seen fire ants make trails before, only mounds, but these make trails too! Is there anything that I can get rid of them with that isnt toxic to my chickens and dogs? Ive tried dusting the whole yard with DE, did it 3 days in a row.......they keep coming back! The other day they had found a batch of earthworms and were all over them eating them while the worms were trying to wriggle away! I found a pullet dead today, with no marks on her but i did find a few fire ants on her. We had a fox last night tear a deep gash into another pullet but the one that died was unmarked, not sure what killed her. It makes me think that the fire ants got her! Please help if you can! Thanks so much!
